Storyline

It's Miriam's 21st Birthday. As a birthday gift, Miriam's aunt Gail has decided to lend Miriam her beautiful country house for an entire weekend. Aunt Gail's country house is amazing. It's a four bedroom house surrounded by breathtaking mountains and miles and miles of woods. Miriam invites her young college friends Cassy, Mark, Tanya and Leo to join her at the country house for what looks to be the most amazing weekend ever. Of course they all jump at the chance to spend a free weekend in the country, in the middle of nowhere. Miriam's friends are totally in the mood for a big time party weekend. They're also anxious to escape the dark and gloomy concrete jungle known as Manhattan. Miriam, Cassy and Tanya bring the food. Mark brings the beer and Leo, the aspiring filmmaker, brings his new video camera. Leo hopes to produce a short movie by documenting every amazing moment of this weekend getaway. Unfortunately, what Leo ends up capturing on camera is not a weekend of peace and ... Written by Dominic Perez

Trivia

Dominic's goal with Evil Things was to take the sheer terror inspired by that real event and re-create it for the characters in his movie. The young characters in Evil Things dare to open that door and make contact with what is on the other side. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning when they are passed by the van on Storm King Mountain Road, they are traveling south towards the city, instead of north towards the Catskills. You can tell this by the Hudson River being on the left side of the road, instead of the right. See more »

it's not a great movie but one of the better found footage movies
19 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was a little disappointing about this movie not as scary as I wanted to be. when saw trailer which sound and looked really scary.

However it did have some really good tense moment, which was really well done, some of screaming send few shiver down the spine but there after a while the screaming goes a bit over the top and get really annoying

I did not expect this form this movie but acting was way better then I thought it be. people are really likable in this movie.

I seen so many lost found footage movies this year , i have lost count, this it not a great movie but one of the better found footage movies I that i have seen this year. (One of few that i liked. 5 out of 10 Good movie
